OCA Warranty

With over 150,000 OCA covers in use around the World we are confident that our products will stand up to the harshest of environments and conditions.

With the addition of our new Polysoft® P2 fabric we are now able to offer an extended warranty as STANDARD – something no other cover maker is able to do. The warranty is in 2 parts, see below for details and terms:-

3 Years – Polysoft® P2 Fabric  5 Years – Workmanship (P2 Fabric)
Warranty applies to P2 fabric only (see P1 below) Applies to build quality (excluding zips/velcro straps)
Covers must be maintained according to manufacturers instructions. Covers must be maintained according to manufacturers instructions.
The 6/6 cleaning cycle set out in the supplied instructions must be followed. The 6/6 cleaning cycle set out in the supplied instructions must be followed.
Any 3rd party modifications or additions will void this warranty. Any 3rd party modifications or additions will void this warranty.
1 Year – Polysoft P1 Fabric with all of the above 5 Year Warranty on workmanship
with all above (P1 Fabric)

Printed logos we offer a 12 month warranty on these, but the manufacture of the inks/media has stated they should last for years. The trouble with printing is if you use soaps and chemicals (in any manner) on them they will break down over time and fade. We would recommend a UV spray applied at least once a year. We have done our own tests and in 3 years of the equivalent Miami sun the printing has not moved or faded when using cold water once ever 3 months.

Another common complaint is customers scratching or having something rub against the logos this will also break them down. We will look at claims under 12 months and every other claim ‘case by case’ should the above not have been done.  

This warranty does not cover accidental damage, incorrect use or abuse & everyday wear and tear and only applies to non-commercial users.

All warranty claims should be submitted by email using the form below. You MUST include your original order number and images of the claimed damage. We will review your claim and in most cases ask for the cover/s to be returned for inspection.

DO NOT return any covers until a ‘return authorization form’ has been emailed to you.

Extreme Angler – Texas Fishing Forum

I want to share some photos of the Outboard Covers of America “Splash Cover” I got for my 200 Mercury ProXS a few weeks back. I wanted to have it on the motor for a while before posting a review. I’m not one to show off my material things. But, I had a hard time finding photos of this brand on bass boats so hopefully this will help someone down the road when they are shopping for a motor cover.

These things are expensive, more expensive than some of the more well-known brands like Tuff Skinz. However, I can also tell you that the OCA cover fits tighter, looks better, and is not likely to leave any rub marks like the Tuff Skinz will (my motor already has some rub rash from the previous owner who had a Tuff Skinz on it).

The cover itself is very snug, to the point that it is difficult to install by yourself, and the elastic band at the bottom of the cover hugs the bottom of the motor cowling in a way that it does not ride-up over time. An added benefit to this grip point is that it does not cover up the trim button on the side of the engine. There is a small Velcro strap at the front of the cover that is little more than a comfort thing; It fits so snugly that I don’t think it is even necessary.

I paid extra for the Mercury decals because I think the boat looks better with them. That’s just me; I paid a lot of money for this boat and I’m not going to put something on it that I don’t like looking at. Unfortunately, these decals are not readily available so message me for details if that’s something you would want. I am not a representative or affiliated with OCA in any way, but I can get you in touch with someone who is if you want those decals.

In summary, the OCA is a very high quality product. It is expensive, but I do believe it is a better product than its less expensive competition. And, I did get blown into a gnarly tree while landing a fish about a week after I got it that would have certainly chewed up the side of my bare cowling; I just dusted off the wood chips from the cover and it looks like nothing ever happened.

Pro XZAbout price

As of Jan 2016 OCA have invested in automated fabric cutting machines (CNC) and have purchased x2 large format printers so we have reduced our pricing to be very competative (if not beat any competitors price).

Polysoft® II

Our new exclusively made fabric with higher spec’s, nick named P2 fabric

Polysoft® II offers strength, dimensional stability, and abrasion resistance with the addition of a lightweight, non-woven soft felt backed polyester backing. Polysoft® II also features great water, UV, and mildew resistance to endure marine environments.

What is Polysoft® II?

In technical terms the material is an acrylic polymeric impregnated fabric. In other words it is a coated polyester that has a very high breaking strength, abrasion, mould and ultraviolet resistant. It also has excellent colour fastness and lasting outdoor durability. In fact Outboard Covers offers a 4 year guarantee against fading and rotting. We also offer a 3 year limited warranty on our high quality workmanship (commercial applications we offer 2 years on both).

Why not Vinyl?

People also ask what is wrong with using vinyl or a padded vinyl won’t that stop the noise more and offer more protection?

Yes it MAY but as it is not breathable it will cause moisture to build up under both the cowl and cover. This will corrode the motor and damage the paint and decals.

Most people are not aware that a replacement cowl is extremely expensive and if new decals are required these are usually extra and can cost as much as one of our Splash covers.

This is typically what would happen if you made your outboard cover out of a material that does not have breathability such as vinyl or even neoprene which is used on wet suits. They do not have what Polysoft® has!

A brief note on my experience with Geoff and Leanne Felgate’s company, Outboard Covers & Accessories (a.k.a. Outboard Covers Australia) as per www.outboardcovers.com.au.

I whole heartedly recommend Outboard Covers Australia. Although their website does the job, I still prefer to order via phone and I am glad to say Geoff has answered the phone every time I have called. What more do you want? I have sold the Quintrex and now own a Sirocco RIB with a Honda F20; neat, fast and fun and now with a new cover for my new engine.
